Together, participants will investigate our relationship to consent as we begin to re-enter public and private creative spaces together. Taking into consideration the different roles we inhabit within interdisciplinary processes, we will begin with physical explorations, cultivating a language of touch, and move into a facilitated conversation centred around care. This session is open to all arts practitioners.
